Sailor Kobe Le Monet Violet

Recommended Posts

Thank you for doing this wonderful review! I was debating getting this ink because it's an LE, but I know I would not use the color much. I'm very happy that you reviewed it so I can have a taste of it through your writing samples, photos and beautiful splashes :)

That's what I thought too before deciding to purchase it. Finally the box won me over. :)

Is this as similar to Tanzanite in writing as it appears in your swabs? My wife loves Tanzanite, but I hate the behavior. I've heard it referred to as pen laxative.

I haven't compared these two in the same pen. I suppose they are similar. Tanzanite would be more saturated, a bit bluer and have less shading. Sasakia charonda is quite close too.

I took a photo of the comparison part to give you a better idea, since my scanner tend to make the pictures more saturated than they really are.

OK, that clarifies things. Not very similar to Tanzanite at all. So do you prefer the Murasaki?

Well between Monet and Murasaki I would choose Monet. I like its bluer hue more.

 

As I said you can try to replicate Monet by mixing Murasaki and Ajisai, since both are not so saturated. Or you can find a way to lower the saturation of Cassia. Actually I shall try it myself. These experiments seem fun!

Here's the result of my mixing experiment.

 

I have to correct myself. Diluting Cassia won't make Monet... I mixed Cassia with Blue Ghost by 2:3. The mixture got desaturated but it's too blue to be Monet...

 

However, mixing Murasaki and Ajisai proved to be quite a success. At 4:1 ratio it's quite similar to Monet.

 

The swabs on the right are all Monet.

Final result comparison: Murasaki-shikibu, 4:1 Mix and Monet.

Thank you, these reviews are excellent!

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
